At Gwelmor we are continually looking for new ways to make our self-contained holiday cottage more eco-friendly and help reduce our carbon footprint.
Our guests will already know that all our wooden furniture is made from recycled or sustainably sourced wood thanks to the talented team at Chunky Monkey in Devon.
We supply a selection of gorgeous herbal toiletries from local Cornish firm Kitty's Herbery, reducing the need for single use plastic.
Guests can now indulge in the fresh and invigorating scent of Rosemary and Bergamot with our range of hand wash, hair & body shampoo and conditioners in refillable pumps.
It is the latest step to further expand our collaboration with regional suppliers. And so far, they've gone down extremely well. Kitty's Herbery shop is literally just up the road from us in Bude. If you stay with us at Gwelmor and like what you smell, why not pay them a visit and pick up some products to take home with you?
We've also swapped our regular toilet and kitchen rolls for 100% recycled products from Who Gives A Crap.
Ok, it might not be local but not only do they supply quality recycled paper, the company gives 50% of its profits to help build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world. Good eh? Especially when you learn the shocking statistic that 2.3 billion people in the world do not have access to a toilet.
Other environmentally friendly measures we have in place include:
We are also in the process of exploring the installation of solar panels and an electricity charging point and will update you on this when we can.
We are always on the look out for fresh ideas, so if you have any, please get in touch.
